- A single dose of the vaccine was given to 2,49,68,992 people
- 1,17,55,545 were given in two doses
- 93.4 percent received a single dose of the vaccine
According to today’s report, of the 6996 new patients, 5953 were eligible for vaccination. Of these, 1758 took one dose of vaccine and 2083 took two doses of the vaccine. However, 2112 people were not reported to have received the vaccine. Covid vaccines protect people from infection and serious illness and significantly reduce the risk of hospitalization and death.
Between 3 and 9 October, an average of 1,26,274 cases were treated, with only 2 percent requiring oxygen beds and only 1 percent needing ICUs. During this period, there were approximately 17,772 fewer reported new cases compared to the previous week. The growth rate of new cases has been reduced by 19 per cent compared to the previous week. The number of patients currently being diagnosed and treated in hospitals, field hospitals, ICUs, ventilators and oxygen beds decreased by 15%, 13%, 32%, 8%, 7% and 14% respectively this week compared to the previous week. Hospitalization rates and serious cases show a declining trend.
In June, July, and August, 6 percent of people with Covid vaccine took one dose of Covid vaccine and 3.6 percent took two doses of Covid vaccine. This suggests that post-vaccination immunizations are effective in preventing infections, but that people who have been vaccinated may be infected at least in small amounts. Therefore, people with related diseases should take precautionary measures to prevent the disease, the minister said.
